Starting Summertime, Fabric, and Colonial picture

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I've got lots of designs and ideas for samplers on paper but my computer is not working right of which I work on them. I hope to have that fixed by next week!

I would recommend Gentle Art's shades of blue for this design.

Stitched 1 over 1 on linen could make a nice tag insert for luggage and the colors could be changed to blend in with browns and tans for our troops.

Peace to all.

My Memorial Day weekend is junkin' it at thrift stores just for fun and to replace some things. This Colonial picture of Mother and Child was just beautiful I thought. It is on canvas as well not print paper.

This red ticking fabric, with cute girl and puppy scenes, was too hard to resist for little of nothing I found this in a pile and is 4 yards of it.

Looks like a good way to freshen up the house for Spring. I could even make a shower curtain with this.

I love the little pics on the red ticking.
I think she looks prescious.

speaking of that...............

yup, pretty red ticking for Summer.

I have made some more progress on the sampler, My Everything, by the Sampler Girl.
Hope you are having a great weekend!
We are definitely welcoming Summertime.

Stay cool and till later,


  1. Dearest Jennifer,

    Sounds like you had a great Pentecost weekend going into Memorial Day.
    Your baby Abby (?) looks so special with her big, almost human and understanding eyes.
    Sending you PEACE and lots of love,

  2. Yeah, trying to stay cool by staying in the AC!! It's been HOT here, Jennifer. Mid nineties, ugh!! Hope you had fun thrifting!!

  3. I'm stitching as well. I'm hoping this stocking will come to an end.

  4. Looks like you found some great things. Hope you and sweet little side kick had a great weekend.
